While we sit around twiddling our thumbs and waiting for training camp to start, we can begin to formulate our big boards for fantasy football. Generally speaking, the Chiefs are a popular team in fantasy football. With Travis Kelce being among the top tight ends and Patrick Mahomes atop quarterbacks, everyone else on the roster is somewhat of an afterthought. Those afterthoughts, however, are what can make or break your season.

Last year, Puka Nacua and Sam LaPorta were secondary options that were taken in the mid-to-late rounds of fantasy drafts, if they were drafted at all. Nacua hauled in 105 receptions for nearly 1,500 yards and six touchdowns. LaPorta also went off in his rookie season, nabbing 86 receptions for 890 yards, and a whopping 10 touchdowns. The question is, "Could the Chiefs have their own fantasy football hidden gem?"

Here are three players that we believe could make the jump.

1. Xavier Worthy, WR

The case for Xavier Worthy is as simple as it is obvious. Xavier Worthy is, as everyone knows, the fastest man in the history of the NFL Combine. Faster than John Ross, faster than Chris Johnson, and faster than Henry Ruggs. While Worthy has much to learn before he can be compared to Tyreek Hill or DeSean Jackson, the tools are apparent.

Worthy is being thrust into a more prominent role than originally anticipated due to the unfortunate potential looming suspension of Rashee Rice. Therefore, Marquise "Hollywood" Brown is, the only wide receiver on the roster who will get more looks than Worthy to start the season. On top of his usage, Worthy has a big-play ability like no other player on the roster. With his blazing speed, any touch could result in chunk yardage and a touchdown.

In a singular-season league, Worthy would be worthy of a mid-round pick, where the other number two receivers are being selected. In a keeper league, Worthy could garner a selection within the first four rounds due to his potential and youth. Either way, Worthy could change the entire complexion of your fantasy football season.
